The Friends of the Hampshire County Youth Orchestra reply upon the kind donations from parents, ex-members and many other supporters to help us raise funds to support the residential training at Bryanston, overseas tours and local concerts. UK tax payers can maximise their contributions by completing a Gift Aid declaration which enables the Friends to claim a further 25% from HM Revenue & Customs.
Higher rate taxpayers
You donate £100 to charity – the charity claim Gift Aid to make your donation £125. You pay 40% tax so you can personally claim back £25.00 (£125 x 20%).
We can also claim Gift Aid from our bucket collections at concerts and busking!
More details can be found on the HMRC website.
